Did you put the same type motor like a reman- or a used from an auto recycle parts place? did all the wiring connections all plug right in correctly? Is this motor turning over with the key or have you been using a jump wire-meaning jumping the starter?

Yes, the engine you installed is probably not the exact duplicate of the failed engine. Thus many "incompatibilities" may have shown up. Engine swaps are intentionally difficult. I recommend you find your year and model "club" to find out what others engine swapers are doing to overcome incompatiblilities.

SOURCE: PT Cruiser Brake Light

The bulb in the rear light has burned out and to replace it follow these instructions: 1) go to your owner's manual to find out the part number. You can find and purchase the replacement bulb at Target, any auto parts store and even at Walmart for under $4.00; 2) pop open the trunk door; 3) get a phillips screw driver and unscrew the 2 screws holding the rear brake light fixture to your car body; 4) as soon as you turn over the fixture you'll see where to pull out the burned out bulb and replace it with the new one(s). Good luck!

SOURCE: Engine motor mounts on 2001 PT Cruiser

Place a block of wood under the engine sump to prevent damage when you jack up the engine to take the tension off the mount. Make sure you do not jack the engine up too much as you might damage the exhaust,cooling hoses etc.

SOURCE: Change the thermostat on 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser

Hi, i have put together a step by step guide that will help you with this replacement job. Make sure the vehicle is in a cool state before starting this job.


* Drain some coolant into a clean container until the coolant level is below the thermostat housing.
* Remove the upper radiator hose connection from the thermostat housing.
* Loosen the housing bolts and remove the housing.
* Remove the gasket and scrape it carefully from the surface of the housing and the mounting surface on the engine. If the gasket remains on either of the surfaces, there will probably bea coolant leak after reassembly. Some engines use a rubber O-ring to seal a thermostat housing.
* Compare the size of the thermostat to the old one. They are of different sizes, types, and temperature ratings.
* The temperature rating is stamped on the sensing bulb on the bottom of the thermostat. The temperature bulb faces the block.
* When replacing a thermostat, be sure that the thermostat fits into the groove in the block or outlet housing. If the thermostat is installed upside down, the engine will overheat.
* Install the gasket.
* Reinstall the thermostat housing. Refill the system and run the engine or pressure test to check for leaks.
* When the engine has reached operating temperature make sure the thermostat opens.
* You should be able to see coolant circulating within the radiator.
* Another way of checking thermostat operation is to feel the top of the radiator hose or use a thermometer or multimeter with a temperature probe to confirm that the coolant is warming up.
* If the engine is overheating, but the top hose is still cool to the touch, the thermostat is stuck closed and must be replaced.

NOTE
When a paper gasket is used and the recess is in the thermostat housing, it is a good practice to position the thermostat into the recess and glue the gasket to hold it in place. If it falls out of its groove during installation, the outlet housing can be cracked or a coolant leak will result. Before tightening the water outlet housing, try to rock it back and forth to be sure it is flush. Housings are often cracked during this step.

2006 pt cruiser. It ran, stood for around 2month and won't crank up. I hear the fuel pump, the starter will not move, I replaced the starter and still no crank or move on the starter.


Can you hear a relay clicking when you turn the key over to "Start"? if not then a faulty relay could be the reason the starter motor is not cranking over. Is the starter solenoid "clicking in" but the engine not turning over? if so , can you turn the engine over by hand?

wits end. my specialty.
first off intermittent are hard hair pullers.
but I find them all with patience and tools, and setting traps.
guessing is a waste of cash and time. stop that.please.
the first question is:
can you save it with your right fast foot, #1 top importance !
15 min just idling
only moving or both.. try to say when it happens.
in gear , out of gear. etc.

first off there are only 4 basics engine stalling causes.
1: lost power (12v) to EFI , any voltmeter can catch this.
2: lost compression in engine (bad engine) only hot. (gauge it)
3: lost spark. easy to see with any strobe light or $2 spark tester or actual spare spark plug..
4: and last, Bad fueling. staving or too much and flooding.
this is easy to find. look at all spark tips.
dry , starving, wet flooding. (1920- to now, no change)

i can not go past this until my First questions above.

there is no need to guess ever.
all the tests are simple and the tools dirt cheap.
less than 5% of costs already !

2006 PT Limited. Engine Malfunction light is on.


First off, it's NOT the crank position sensor...Unless you've pulled the motor recently!
Get down to Advance Auto Parts and buy a car of "SeaFoam" ($9) and add it to your tank per instructions...drive AT LEAST 100 miles...problem should go away.
If not, your O2 sensor in the exhaust (x3) is faulty...look to spend $200-400 depending on your mechanic...DO NOT GO TO THE DEALER!
Good Luck
